Can Vidalet Park

Can Vidalet Park (Park)

Can Vidalet Park

General information

Can Vidalet Park is located in Esplugues de Llobregat, bordering west of Barcelona. The park is considered as one of the main green zones of this area.

Originally, this place was occupied by wealthy families and used as a summer residence. It housed luxurious houses and gardens. Due to the Spanish Civil War, many of these families left to never return. Once the war ended, the gardens were abandoned for many years, until Barcelona's City Council decided to renew it and finally open them to the public in 1975.

Can Vidalet Park is especially known for its lush vegetation, romantic inspiration, charming houses and panoramic views . When you visit you'll quickly understand why people like this park so much.

What to see here?

Mansion at Can Vidalet, no a language school
The mansion at the park

Can Vidalet is a strange combination of geometric forms, integrating houses and areas of vegetation to the relief created so that everything blends with the surrounding nature. The park is divided into 4 areas:

Area A: The Mansion

This is the main entrance of the park. Go through the beautiful wrought iron gate and see the palace, which is now a language school. In a neoclassical style, this house is the only thing that has remained standing through the years. There's basketball court right next door.

Area B: The Lake

This area is the most emblematic of the park. It's here where you can see a small and strange temple. A stone arch stands out in the middle of the lake. Walk in silence by the waterfront, caves and some amazing sculptures among exuberant vegetation. You'll also find a small football field by the lake.

Area C: The Laundry Zone

Don't forget to visit the old laundry area and take advantage of it's heights to enjoy a gorgeous panoramic view of Barcelona that's ideal for taking photos. Pass by a majestic oak and bask in the massifs of flowers with different shapes and colours that surround it. You'll have the chance to relax at the bar nearby and, if you need to, use the public bathroom.

Area D: El Turó (hill)

Along the palm trees, you will reach the small hill of El Turó. Climb up to admire the image of Santa Magdalena. There are several ping-pong tables and children's swings in this area.
